Take our situation…we love sharing daily photos of Bryce, training guides, random writing, photos (other than Bryce), and now video. In the past we had separate web sites that either I developed or were on some shared environment (again the social sites), but this meant we had to send friends and family to multiple web sites which was a huge pain. For several years now I had been looking for the holy grail to this dilemma. I wanted a single web site presence and a single administration tool. This of course led me down the CMS (content management system) path, which generally handle non-blog data better than blog engines like WordPress, Blogger, MovableType, etc. A blog software comparison; I am not sure why ExpressionEngine (EE) was included in the comparison as it is a CMS solution. Of course there are plenty of good freebies and many commercial products as well. I spent several months reviewing my options and eventually decided to use ExpressionEngine (the paid personal version). It’s beyond the scope of this post to go into all the reasons, but the short answer is: fantastic, fast support and easy to create a your own theme (template).
Anyway, my point is…it has been a long journey, but I think I finally am happy to stay put in my current virtual identity. It will certainly evolve over the upcoming months as I still have plenty to do. If you have any suggestions please let us know…which would be a lot easier if we had a contact page, huh? I guess leaving a comment will have to do for now.
